This is a snapshot of my month’s meal plan. It stays magnetized to my fridge door so that I always know what’s on the menu. As you saw last week, these are pretty straightforward meal plans.

They are also very subject to change.

I pulled a few switcheroos this week, accommodating for meats that failed to thaw in time — and cooks who failed to pull things from the freezer in time. Ha!

This week our meal plan looks like this:


Serve-yourself-breakfast-bar, consisting of:


A regular rotation of:


Easy dinners that make use of the grill, the griddle, or the crockpot. Oh, and several buffets, too!

6. Grilled tri-tip, baked potato, salad

7. Quesadillas, salad

8. Pasta bar: lots of noodles, two kinds of sauce, garlic bread, salad

9. Bday dinner – Kid’s choice

10. Chihuahua Chili, cornbread

11. Pizza Night

12. Mexibar: taco filling (like Carnitas), toppings, tortillas (maybe homemade), taco shells or chips

 What’s cooking at your house?

  1. Thanks for sharing looks yummy!

  2. Those pancakes look absolutely divine! Do you have the recipe for the apples and topping somewhere? I must have missed them if you did. You really do a nice job with presentation – one of those days I’ll need to work on that. For now I’m just happy to get an actual meal on the table 🙂

    Here is our plan for the week.

  3. Loving your blog! I just came across it via the Organizing Junkie’s Menu Plan Monday. Our family (myself, my hubby & 20 month old daughter) are recently on a tighter food budget but I am pretty choosy about the types of foods that I put on my table. I love that you have a lot of budget friendly meals that don’t require a bunch of processed foods. Thank you for sharing your great recipes! I’m seriously feeling a renewed sense of hope. 🙂
